Send wp_usermeta data to auto-responder

  • I’m using Aweber for my auto-responder and have a particular problem explained below. However, I think it can also be thought of generically.

    Aweber expects a name to be delivered for subscriptions. If you select the subscribe with name checkbox, and put name in the “name identifier” field, it successfully sends the username.

    However, I want to send the person’s actual name using the values of First_name and Last_name, which are found in wp_usermeta. I tried using %%first_name%% %%last_name%% but those got sent as literals.

    Is there a way of sending any given field(s) from wp_usermeta?

    I feel as though I’m close to solving this problem, but I haven’t been able to get over the hump. An answer is definitely worth a beer (or two)!

  • I no longer need this problem solved – I’ve found another plug-in that handles the requirements for me. However, I would guess that others would be interested in the answer if you have one.

    Hi Hgluckman,

    Although it’s been a long time since I looked into that part of the code I don’t think this is possible with my plugin. I’ll have a look into making this work though.

    Thanks for your suggestion and I’m glad you found a plugin that does the job for you.
